Where do I FedEx my passport application to be certain it arrives at correct location?

by Kim
(Parkersburg, WV)

Question: We need a physical address for the application and I am requesting a signature receipt to make sure the passport arrives safely. Where do I mail the passport?

Answer: The addresses are provided on the form. There is an address for routine service and another for expedited service. There is no physical street address available. For this reason, we recommend USPS since they deliver to P.O. Boxes.The following methods will provide you with confirmation that your package has arrived.

* USPS Priority Mail with Delivery Confirmation
* USPS Express Mail traceable delivery method (for overnight delivery requests)

USPS Priority Mail with Signature Confirmation. Visit USPS Mail Services page for additional forms of traceable delivery.

We also recommend you use a protective package such as a Tyvek envelope to send the application and supporting documents. Documents will be returned to you.
